What a Girl Wants: Valentine’s Day Edition
Flowers, chocolates, an expensive dinner - on Valentine’s Day, you know the drill…
Flowers, chocolates, an expensive dinner - on Valentine’s Day, you know the drill. But what if you want to try something different? These ideas go beyond the ordinary and present new options for expressing your love.
Are you planning a vacation, considering signing up for a couple’s cooking class, or contemplating a camping trip for the two of you? Experience gifts are not only thoughtful, they’re romantic. You’re giving the gift of quality time spent together! To make it even better, along with revealing the fun that you’ll be having, put together a few gifts that go with the experience. Tropical vacation? Pick out a bathing suit or a beach towel. Camping trip? Get a couple’s sleeping bag. Little gifts make the anticipation of the main event that much better.
Jewelry is practically a no-fail gift. As long as you know her style, there’s no end to what you can get. To make it even sweeter, personalize it! Rings engraved with sweet sayings and significant dates, bracelets that have special meaning, a necklace with a birthstone pendant…if you’re still lost, take a few photos of the items she wears most often and show them to the pros at a jewelry store.
If she’s a fitness fanatic, pick out a new gym bag or yoga mat. If she’s a bookworm, go for the latest bestsellers. Whatever her thing is, whatever she loves (besides you), help her keep doing it. Some other ideas include: craft supplies, garden tools, baking/kitchenware or sports gear.
Bath and Body Products
Bonus points if you know her favorite scent! Every woman loves to be pampered. And while generally life does not allow for regular spa days, she can experience that luxury at home with soothing bath salts, silky smooth lotion, a brand new loofah, or an assortment of face masks - or all of the above!
What does she actually want to wear to bed? Something soft, cozy, and adorable. Since we’re getting closer to spring, flannel might not be the best choice. Pieces that can transition seasons, like light sweats and a tank top with a warm cardigan, are a better option.
The One Gift All Women Want
Beyond the books and the bath products and the jewelry, there’s one gift you can give the person you love on Valentine’s Day, and every day, that they truly want.
Let them know that their presence in your life makes a difference - that your life is enhanced when they are around. Remind them that each day presents a choice, and each day you choose them.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
